About the Session
The US and world economies are faced with the most serious crises since World War II: a global pandemic and heightened geopolitical tensions, which have cost the world major losses in lives and livelihoods. Despite dire projections about the demise of globalization, the latest data paint a more hopeful picture. International trade and capital flows have rebounded, people are traveling again, and companies are refocusing their strategies to meet the new opportunities and challenges of globalization. Globalization is not declining but the landscape is changing and has important implications for International Business (IB) education and practice.
This special session hosted by CU Denver’s Institute for International Business, in collaboration with the US Department of Education Centers for International Business Education Research (Indiana University CIBER, BYU CIBER), will address the changing landscape of globalization, its impact on international business education and practice, and innovations in IB education amid the changing global business landscape. Invited lead discussants will include a senior official from the US Department of Education, international business education leaders, international business executives, and state government officials.
